Faculty Affairs & Leadership Development

Investing in our faculty and developing the next generation of healthcare leaders


Facilitating Professional Growth and Promoting Academic Success

Our world-class faculty are leaders in their fields, committed educators, and devoted Tar Heels. The Office of Faculty Affairs and Leadership Development holds a deep commitment to supporting all faculty in achieving academic success and fostering a culture of leadership across the institution.​

The success of our faculty depends on their ability to adapt to the dynamics of the ever-changing healthcare environment. As an institution, we strive to promote an equitable and inclusive setting where our colleagues can excel in the interrelated areas of research, education, and patient care, and where the vision of leadership is based on the premise that leadership is not isolated to those who hold prominent positions.​

Since we know that several factors including career stage, gender, and other influences mediate faculty development needs, our Office of Faculty Affairs and Leadership Development provides a wide-ranging and customizable portfolio of programs and other opportunities for personal reflection and growth.
